This past summer we worked both the Sutter Creek and Pine Grove farmers market every weekend, meeting neighbors, customers and making a lot of friends along the way. All we had to show at the time was our 2017 primitivo, but that didn't seem to disappoint our red wine fans.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Big, fruit forward, juicy- our primitivo is a fun and ultra inclusive wine for all kinds of wine drinkers. It packs a punch and loves food, making it a great wine for dinner time and gatherings. We even took home two medals for the vintage!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have you tried our primitivo yet? Let us know how you're enjoying it!

The California weather 🌞 is perfect for wine tasting this weekend. We suggest visiting Calaveras County. With over 30 boutique tasting rooms and more than 50 wineries it will be a weekend well spent 🍷 ⁣

Visiting wineries in Sierra Foothills on the beautiful day😋🌸
I found this old topography map of Sonoma County from 1916 in the one of wineries’ bathroom😆 
It is fascinating to see how some of area used to be called differently🤔
晴天の週末、片道約3時間半かけてシエラフットヒルズのワイナリー巡りをしてまいりました🍷
シエラフットヒルズはカリフォルニアのワインブドウ栽培の歴史の中でも古くから葡萄の木が植樹されたことで知られておりますが昨今は多くの若い生産者たちがこちらの葡萄を使って面白いスタイルのワインを作っております。
以前からシエラフットヒルズのブドウに興味がありましたが今回は友人に誘われ重い腰を上げての訪問が実現しました😆
思った以上に沢山のワイナリーが点在し標高の高さのためでしょうか(最後に訪問したスキナーズは800mほどの標高でした)全体的に酸高くフルーツ感を残したキリッとしたワインが多くとても好印象でした❣️
また訪れたワイナリーで1916年当時のソノマの地図を発見❗️昔は違う名前で呼ばれていた地域が沢山だった様ですがいろんな発見があった充実した週末の始まりでした。

I wouldn’t say wine making involves a whole lot of sitting down, but there are those rare moments...like pumping the primitivo from stainless tank to barrel! V cushy job on the stainless end.

A couple weekends ago, I got to stay at the @jeffrunquistwines_official “R” Vineyard House - it’s a cozy spot that sleeps up to 8 and is walking distance from the JRW tasting room. Oh and it’s on the vineyard😍 Read more about the experience on LMentsOfStyle.com (hint: my fave wine was the Barbera - a varietal then region is known for) and SEE the fun over on IGTV🍷

Hey, look at that. Only 10 or so domestic wines have made this cut in the last 30 years. Only 60 or so ever given for any wine. This is a first for a wine made in the Sierra Foothills appellation and our rugged Euro-like terroir. Thanks to @jimgordon.wine and the staff @thewineenthusiast! Excited and humbled. #sierrafoothillswine #syrah #rhonezone

As one of the first female winemakers in the state, Marie Suize routinely broke with convention, not only running her own large scale wine and brandy operation, but also running crews in her own gold mine, and wearing pants- a transgression that garnered her the nickname Madame Pantalons. 
Californy Reserve is our way of saluting Suize and the long line of wine and brandy makers that made Amador county the heart of winemaking during the California gold rush, a calling we continue to heed now 150 years later. Some things never change…

Our fourth and final stop of the day in @eldoradowines was @lavacapwinery , where we were shown around the winery by one of the family members, Emmett, who helps manage the vineyard with his dad Charlie. Another gorgeous site with plenty of outdoor areas for a picnic 🧺 🥂 with awesome views. 🌅
.
Lava Cap is a third-generation family-owned winery in Placerville, California. The Jones family planted their first vines in 1981 and opened the winery in 1986 in the heart of the Sierra Foothills at 2700 feet, making them some of the highest vineyards in CA. ⛰
.
The Jones family of geologists specifically selected this location for its prime volcanic soil that is particularly well suited to growing fine wine grapes 🍇 . They named their new business after this unique "lava cap," where their grapes flourish in the volcanic soil, warmed by the foothill sunshine and cooled by gentle Sierra night breezes. The wines are intensely aromatic and luscious with deep, rich fruit erupting with flavor.🍷
.
Sustainability is a cornerstone of wine production at Lava Cap Winery. It starts in the vineyard, where the goal is to not only leave the environment better than they found it, but to create world-class grape growing conditions. ♻️
.
I particularly loved their 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, which earned 92 points from Wine Enthusiast, and their 2017 Zinfandel Reserve, which has earned many accolades, including 90 points from Wine Spectator and Best in Class from the 2020 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. 🏆
.
Thanks again to @karasather and @kiltandcork for arranging this awesome tour of just a few of the wineries doing amazing things in the @eldoradowines AVA. Can’t wait to go back 😊

It’s National Drink Wine Day!
May we suggest the newly released 2015 Petite Sirah. 
Full-bodied with notes of strawberry, white pepper, and juniper berry, this gem from the Sierra Foothills hits the spot.

Boom! And so it begins... the blind tasting of our 8 Mourvèdre finalist for the Foothills Wino Top Six and our Mourvèdre of the Year!
🍷
Each Somm on our panel tastes the 8 finalists and rates them on a 100 point scale. Each Somm creates their own method.
🍷
For me... I like to have an Old World and a New World control wines snuck into the blinds. I enjoy seeing if I can pick out the non-Foothills wines (I nearly always can), and I like seeing how the ratings compare (Foothills wines nearly always win).
🍷
For the Mourvèdre tasting, I’ve chosen the @tablascreek from Paso Robles (I don’t think you can get more classic New World Mourvèdre, if there is such a thing) and this Leon Barral from the Languedoc (thanks @kermitlynchwine ).
🍷
I do side-by-side blind tastings and use a spreadsheet to tally the results. I rate each in several criteria, about half of which are objective (intensity, complexity, acidity, finish length, etc) and about half of which are subjective.
🍷
Then the disguised wines go to the other panelists. (Thanks @coravin I don’t know what we’d do without you!) All of the ratings are normalized and averaged, and then the winners are announced.
🍷
As for these Mourvèdres, I am simply in awe of the quality. I can’t imagine two of these aren’t going to make the Top Six! We’ll find out on March 1!

4: family members "living the dream" e.g. power washing, forklifting, pumping over, taste testing.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
15: states shipped to with wine club members from coast to coast.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
600: cases produced in 2018 across 5 varietals.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
900: our IG follower count as of this week! We’re shooting for 1k this month, and we need help to get there! Take a sec and tag a friend who loves wine to keep them in the loop with ye olde local sustainable foothill winos!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In 2018 we were totally wrapped up in the sheer logistics of caring for our wines and getting them to our (extremely patient) customers, but 2019 was our year to really focus on our sales and marketing. With a budget of $0 this has meant taking things slow and learning to do everything ourselves, but we've seen such a positive response from so many folks! It gives us a lot of hope that you don't need big bucks to compete if you're making a product people love. So whether you've bought a bottle, bought a case, or even just followed along with our progress here on IG, we want to THANK YOU for your support. We couldn't drink it all on our own!
